The famous Russian coach Valery Gazzaev commented on the decision of “Locomotive” not to renew the contract with the 73-year-old coach Yuri Semin.
“I am very sorry that the leadership of “Locomotive” has taken such a decision. What is it motivated? I totally understand. How can you not renew the contract with the coach, who is now in second place in the Champions League zone? No words…
Such decision can accept only those people who do not understand what awaits them tomorrow. On what basis have not renewed the agreement with Yuri Pavlovich? Yes, they can refer to his age, something else. But, in my opinion, the main and only criterion in this matter is the result. If not, the coach change. But Semin in recent years has won many trophies and medals! Where is the logic? Where the reasons for the change? You explain to me! Except Semin did not fulfill the task?
And “the locomotive” Semin invites instead of the man from nowhere. I would understand if they called the coach of the calibre of Mourinho or Guardiola. Then, maybe, it was worth even to speak about the development of the club. And here… Invite unknown technician from nowhere… No words! It’s hard for me to understand,” — said Gazzaev.
